September Club Q and Want2Scrap with Thandar

Hello everybody, this is Thandar sharing my creation with the September Club Q contents along with bling and a stencil from our friends at Want2Scrap.

I had alot of fun playing with die cuts and embellishments that come with the kits, They are wonderful mix of texture, colors, ribbons, brads and die cuts.


The flowers die cuts are just so easy to just ink up for perfect embellishments. Crystal center just add creame on the crop. I had cut out a sentiment from the collection to create this card.


I hope you enjoy looking at this beautiful card as much as I enjoy making it.

September Club Q and Want2Scrap with Rhonda

Tuesday greetings to you!  It's Rhonda here today to host the blog for you.

My project today features pieces from the September Club Q kits and products from our friends at Want2Scrap!

To start, I inked the edges using Feather Grey PowderPuff Chalk Ink on my background paper included in the kit.  Then, I used the Chevron Stencil from Want2Scrap with Glass Bead Gel to create some texture and interesting background pattern.

I assembled my flowers from the kits and layered them. I've used Blue Lagoon PowderPuff Chalk Ink and Orange Slice on my flowers. They are accented with bling from Want2Scrap. My "Love" chipboard title was inked in Blue Lagoon as well.

The partial circle and flag die cuts were also included in the kit.  I used a piece of the Mardi Gras bling from Want2Scrap to accent my half flower. I love the combination of Want2Scrap and Quick Quotes together!

Life is Good with Donna

Hello everyone, Donna Coughlin here to present to you a layout I did using Quick Quotes and Want2scrap products.

It's already the middle of September and I've been thinking about fall with all the orange, yellow and brown leaves that I will have to rake soon! This layout is of my son in law, and two beautiful granddaughters last fall so this was a perfect opportunity to scrap a fall layout. Did you know Want2scrap has templates now? I was lucky enough to be able to with the brick stencil and use the awesome new line from Quick Quotes called Sheer Joy.

I want to explain to you how I used the brick stencil in reverse as I did in the corners of my layout. First I took some gesso and using and old plastic card spread it all over the stencil.

Then lay the stencil in the area you wish to have the bricks. Very carefully take a piece of scrap paper and lay it on the stencil and press very gently.

And this is a close up of what it looks like, I did not want perfect bricks and I love how it looks.

I also used the stencil on a piece of paper I tore and distressed with Quick Quotes Powderpuff ink. The using the brick stencil and the plastic card spread it on the scrap piece of paper being careful not to go over the ends of the paper. Adding the Want2Scrap white pearls looks great against the Quick Quotes Sheer Joy paper.

My Girl with Susie

Hello and welcome to the blog! We are so excited to be doing a month long feature with our friends at Want2Scrap this month.

It's Susie hosting the blog today with a layout featuring the Dream Big collection and some goodies from Want2Scrap! The colors in this collection were a perfect match for my daughter's school picture!  So happy!

I started by tracing a tag from my stash onto Dream Big 400 so that the stripes ran diagonally.

Next I reached for the Chevron Stencil from Want2Scrap and the Carribean Blue PowderPuff Chalking Ink. I shifted the stencil after the first application of ink so that the pattern lined up to create a diamond lattice when I inked a second time.

I used a black pen to trace in some of those lines to highlight the shapes. I cut circles from the Dream Big 100 paper and trimmed it to match the edge of the tag - except for the one circle I left on the upper right!

I paper pieced the doll by stamping her on multiple papers; the main body is Dusty Road 400, the dress is Dream Big, and the sash and tiara are from Calypso 200.

I used Java Powderpuff Chalking Ink for her hair and created the band of jewels with the Want2Scrap 72 Count Orange Rhinestones.

I added a sentiment from the Sheer Joy Chipboard Die Cuts and dressed up one of the designs on the paper with Want2Scrap 72 Count Turquoise Rhinestones.

I love the 72 Count packages of bling from Want2Scrap because you get 4 different sizes of rhinestones in each pack! Here's another look at the finished tag.

To create the base of the layout, I started with black cardstock and layerd on the yellow side of Dream Big 300. I added a doily in the upper left corner of the layout.  Before I adhered it in place, I inked the edge with Carribean Blue and Orange Slice PowderPuff Chalking Inks.  The "Dream Big" banner is from Calypso 500.

The last thing I added was the title...a fun mix of dimensional alphas and little word stickers from my stash!

Moments with Jen

Hi everyone! I had a lot of fun mixing both the Quick Quotes and Want 2 Scrap items together on this particular layout. I used the Serendipity paper line and inked the edges of my papers with Baja Blue PowderPuff Chalking Ink.

I then decided to mimic the brick pattern that is on the horizontal paper strip. I placed the brick Stencil onto my background sheet and filled in the bricks using Coconut White PowderPuff Chalking Ink. The white ink really popped on the dark background!
As I reached the top of the page, I slightly faded the brick pattern by applying less ink.


I then pop dotted a title from the Serendipity Words and Phrases Strip. I added the Fancy That! Bling Border above and below the title to make it really stand out.

Cards Inspiration with Dana

Hi Quick Quotes fans, Dana here today sharing a card that I created with the gorgeous Sheer Joy Collection, which I think is just perfect for fall, and some fantastic Want2Scrap products.

I selected the Sheer Joy 700 patterned paper for the base of my card because I loved the soft script and flourish design. I repeated those design elements with the Want2Scrap White Pearl Frilly Flourish Swirl and the script sentiment on the piece of chipboard (Sheer Joy Chipboard Die Cuts). I added texture to my card base by using the Want2Scrap Chevron Stencil with whipped spackle.

I wanted to play up the music theme so I embossed a piece of cardstock with a music note embossing folder, lightly sanded the top to highlight the musical score and then inked the edges with Rusty Nail PowderPuff Chalking Ink. If you're looking for a vibrant burnt orange ink to add to your collection, you're going to want to pick this shade up from the Quick Quotes Store!

I wanted to add a touch of shimmer to my card, so I embossed some Fall Leaves with gold embossing enamel.
